James Suckling"A big and chewy 2006 Brunello with blackberries, blueberries and minerals on the nose and palate. Full and tannic, but lots of fruit underneath. Needs time to mellow...Made for aging...

Wine EnthusiastSandro Chia and his family at Castello Romitorio offer a rich, plush and velvety expression of Brunello with excellent dimension and staying power. Plump fruit flavors and black cherry color the long, soft fade.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a serious, intense Brunello. Wild cherries, herbs, tobacco, spices and worn-in leather are some of the aromas and flavors that flow from this wiry, structured wine. This shows plenty of length on the palate, although the tannins dry out a touch on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Wine SpectatorA rich, generous red, this firms up on the finish, showing fine length. Sweet cherry, berry, spice and mineral notes mingle, then the layer of tannins emerges. Well-proportioned, just needs time. Best from 2013 through 2024. 1,400 cases imported.
